The internet has certainly changed all that! 20 years ago, I never would have imagined selling my products countrywide, let along worldwide. Let's face it, I never would have imagined selling via my computer - I didn't even own one back then.
I am still not a fan of packing up my wares and driving them around the countryside to a school or village hall. It is far too much hassle for hit or miss sales figures. I would far rather spend the time at home sewing, knowing that my products are being viewed 24/7, globally in cyberspace.
The CRAFTfest concept is very simple. Anyone can view the products for sale at creative-connections.ning.com where all of the different sellers are split into a variety of categories. Every seller has a photograph of each of their products in an album and every item has the price, description and a link to where the item can be bought. Sellers can click through from the photograph of an item to buy it from the seller's website, Etsy store, Folksy store or whereever. That's all there is to it.
It's free to visit CRAFTfest and you don't need to join either. You've got all week, so come and take a peek!
